how this code works?

Post by amir1981 »

I have this code:
#pragma omp parallel for
for(int32 i = 0; i < 10; i++){
DoSomething();
}
...
DoSomething(){
#pragma omp parallel for
for(int32 i = 0; i < 10; i++){
DoAnotherThing();
}
}

I am wondering how openmp distributes the works among threads in the above code! Lets say I have 8 core on my computer. I think openmp distribute the first loop between these 8 cores and basically ignore the second pragama until one of the threads finish its job and become ideal then it assign it to the second one. Am I correct?

basically you are right, OpenMp will fork() and join between the pragmas
